Collected Treasures...

30 Sep 2015



Some of our collected treasures from the last couple of weeks or so. I love seeing all the various colours in Hydrangea blooms at this time of year... so many shades from just one plant! The bottom picture shows the same flowers as in the first, pressed and slightly faded now, but still so pretty. 

Our finds will be mostly Autumn treasures now... conkers, acorns, seed pods, berries and crunchy leaves. I've been searching for ideas on Pinterest for things to do with the conkers and acorns we've collected. I love the idea of sticking felt balls inside the acorn tops to make Autumn decorations. And Elizabeth had the idea of making a conker garland, so we might well try that too! 

What treasures have you collected lately, do you have any ideas of things to make with them? x

  1. Beautiful images. Your way with composition is always such a delight. I don't know why but the random flippers that turn up in your plastic beach find collections always tickle me - they look so comical. :-)

    1. Hi Julie. Ah thank you, that's really kind. I would like to - and have been saying it for ages. Just need to actually get them done I think! x

    2. Well, I'm guilty of the same thing. I make a kind of collage that I rarely share on my blog because I'm waiting for the time when I have prints / cards etc to offer at the same time. It's a long time coming!

  4. Hello Caroline. I love all your collections and designs - the way your display them are just beautiful.

    Sorry it's been an age. I'm slowly finding my way back to blogging.
